Dr. Hansen is consistently well-informed, patient and even has a sense of humor. I always tell him he knows about every problem I present to him. I have only one fear and that he will retire even though it is inevitable and well deserved.

For eleven years Dr. Hansen has been my Internist. In every event he has beenproactive and reactive (to my needs), communicative, and follows up quickly when I call. Further, I place a lot of emphasis on "bedside manner." His skill on this point is natural and generous. I've said to my children, "if I find I hsave an incurable disease I want to hear about it from Dr. Hansen.

It is good to have a primary doctor who knows your history. You are able to discuss what is going on currently and both of you are aware of your history.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hansen's for more than 15 years. He has overseen my somewhat unusual health history with great attention to detail. This has included several obscure medical conditions which, through perseverance, he has managed to identify and successfully treat. He is always personable and compassionate as well as thorough and punctual. I could not have found a finer primary care physician. Thank you, Dr. Hansen.

Dr. Hansen has been my primary physician for over 25 years. He has stood by me through a variety of health issues; some minor, other more serious. Throughout, Dr. Hansen has always explained the problem, provided alternatives to consider, and recommended the best approach. I have and will continue to recommend him to family and friends.
